Rishi Kumar Shukla takes charge as CBI director

New Delhi | Former Madhya Pradesh Police chief Rishi Kumar Shukla today took charge as the new director of the Central Beaureu of Investigation (CBI).

Rishi Kumar Shukla, a 1983-batch IPS officer was appointed as the chief of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) for a fixed tenure of two years on 2nd February.

Shukla who was recently transferred from the post of Director General of Madhya Pradesh Police to the police housing corporation replaced Alok Kumar Verma, who was removed from the post of CBI Director on January 10.

The post of the CBI chief was been lying vacant since January 10 after the unceremonious exit of Verma, who had been engaged in a bitter fight with Gujarat-cadre IPS officer Rakesh Asthana over corruption charges. M Nageswara Rao had been working as the interim CBI chief after Verma’s ouster.
